Jacob Bannon‘s own Wear Your Wounds will reprise their 2017 performance this year, promising improvisation and experimentation into the mix.

“I’m extremely excited to perform live with Wear Your Wounds at Roadburn 2018. Playing the 2017 edition of the festival was a creative high point for me and I am honored to return. This time we will be integrating different songs into the set from both the “WYW” double album, the “Dunedevil” album, as well as other material. In a live setting we plan on expanding on the studio recordings, using them as a skeleton for improvisation and experimentation. Hope to see some of you there”Jacob Bannon

ALL PIGS MUST DIE

“In my opinion All Pigs Must Die are one of the best bands playing dark hardcore/punk today. Founded by friends bonded by their collective obsession of heavy music, they have evolved from merely a project into a true force in aggressive. With their members so busy with other bands/projects, live performances have been rare over the years. It is an honor to bring them to Roadburn 2018, so their brand of heavy can be experienced by the masses”Jacob Bannon.

STOMACH EARTH

“Mike McKenzie is one of the most interesting and talented musicians rooted in New England’s heavy music scene. His Stomach Earth album was one of the heaviest releases he has ever worked on. It will be incredible to see him perform this powerful record live exclusively at Roadburn Festival 2018. Sonically it is a perfect fit for the festival, and a great example of the darkness New England music has to offer”Jacob Bannon.

NYIÞ & WORMLUST PERFORMING HIEROS GAMOS

At the core of most innovative work is the collaborative spirit. While Icelandic ritual drone and folk act NYIÞ is already an inherently collaborative entity, they’re really stepping things up this year by fusing with psychedelic black metal giant Wormlust to create a new beast: Hieros Gamos.

Little of this planned masterwork shall be revealed before the performance itself, but those with any familiarity can imagine what otherworldly horrors and delights await. Those who witnessed NYIÞ’s massive performance piece as part of the Úlfsmessa in 2016 knows just how deep the currents run. With the addition of such a force as Wormlust, we need say little beyond urging you to arrive early to be the first to witness Hieros Gamos in its live debut.

SCATTERWOUND FEAT. JUSTIN K. BROADRICK

Known experimentalist Dirk Serries (YODOK III, The Void Of Expansion, Fear Falls Burning) and Hellmut Neidhardt, aka N, had this collaboration idea floating around in the ether for, rumour has it, almost a decade. Before the universe shifts and we lose sight of it for good, measures have been taken, both by the band and by Roadburn: Scatterwound will perform at Roadburn 2018 with none other than Justin K. Broadrick as their special guest.

GALLOPS

Having broken up shortly after the release of their debut album back in 2012, Gallops left quite the hole in the ranks of bands who push at the boundaries of rock music. Fortunately, Gallops returned in 2016. “It just needed a nap,” was how Mark Huckridge, Liam Edwards and Brad Whyte jokingly put it, so we’re very happy and also relieved that someone remembered to set an alarm. They’ll keep you guessing at every turn, moods fluctuating from eeriness to jubilation, from intimidating darkness to feverish light, but always pulsating and engaging.

SPOTLIGHTS

At Roadburn we like to push the envelope, and the 2018 edition of the festival is a celebration of bands creating music on their own terms, hence inviting Spotlights to play on Sunday, April 22.

Coming from the streets of Brooklyn, New York, Sarah and Mario Quintero, the pair at the core of this remarkable entity, don’t shy away from genre hopping, and capture a voice of their own by mainlining doom with shoegaze, pairing post rock to sludge, and forming a dreamy yet very melodic concoction. Think My Bloody Valentine embracing the Melvins, or Isis engaging the Smashing Pumpkins.

SUPERSONIC BLUES

Hailing from The Hague and infused with a funk-fuzz power in their delivery that makes them an immediate standout, the young trio Supersonic Blues are welcomed to Roadburn 2018 with open arms this April. Supersonic Blues will perform at the San Diego Clubhouse aka the Hall of Fame alongside kindred spirits from the San Diego scene on Friday, April 20.
